Cabled Decreases


Swatch on the needles with double cabled decreases near right edge and triple cabled decreases near left edge.

Cabled decreases are an elegant way to knit double, triple and even quadruple decreases that lay flat. I like using them in my designs that incorporate English tailored shoulders. I often use double decreases on the back shoulder shaping and I find that cabled decreases are a sophisticated alternative for k3tog and sssk.
